Webinar: Brush Condition Monitoring Conversation

why monitor brushes? View the webinar here. The number one cause of ring fires is short brushes. The main objective of Brush Condition Monitoring (BCM) is to stop forced outages caused by short brushes. The system allows plants to better plan their maintenance schedules. Plants only pull brushes when needed. This enables a safer work … Continued

Webinar: EMI Monitoring Conversation

Is emi magic? View the webinar here. Electro – Magnetic Interference (EMI) Monitoring may seem like a magic trick. However, the system simply detects conditions associated with EM emissions within the Generator, Isophase Bus, and Transformers. Subject matter experts have been extensively gathering data over the last 40 years. Through their research and testing, they … Continued

Webinar: Shaft Ground Monitoring

shaft grounding overview View the webinar here. The objective of shaft grounding is to protect the bearings, and to establish a good electrical connection. Shaft voltage, if left unchecked, can cause failures in the bearing surfaces, stator insulation, exciter insulation, and grounding, leading to catastrophic failures. There are three main grounding techniques: Carbon brushes, which … Continued
